Hi I'm Ty Hogue

Currently preaching the good news in the land of the rising sun. I have an enthusiasm for living. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy snowboarding, longboarding, boxing, surfing, lacrosse, wrestling, collecting ugly hawaiian t-shirts, eating cold cereal, giving high-fives, laughing, running barefoot, meeting new people and trying new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I recieved a witness from God that this is His Son's church restored on the earth today. The Bible teaches that if we ask we shall recieve and if we knock it shall be opened. I asked God a question and through the power of the Holy Ghost, or the spirit of truth, He gave me an answer. I know this Church is true. God loves all His children and still speaks to them today, and He has a perfect plan for all of us.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by making the most of every single day. A big teaching of this church is that "men are that they might have joy". The purpose of life is to experience joy and I try to exemplify that in everything I do. I believe that if you're not having fun with whatever you are doing right now- you're doing it wrong. Luckily God has a perfect plan and Christ has showed us a perfect example for how to become truly happy. One of the best ways to gain joy is by giving it to others. Service brings incredible happiness. Right now I have the awesome privilege to spend 2 years of my life in Tokyo Japan, teaching this message of joy.
